Danny and Brad may not like "bigs." But they ain't winning a title until they get more talent and size in the post.
I like Theis, Kanter and Rob Williams, their competitiveness, hustle, willingness to play their role, etc.
But we ain't hanging another banner with any of them starting.
I still think Rob Williams could develop into a starting calibre big man. I could easily see him developing into a Theo Ratliff type of big, except with better passing and less blocked shots. Hopefully less injury-prone too.
I posted in another thread a few big-men who I think we should look at in the 2021 draft (as I see this one as quite shallow. I like guys like Nnaji and Tillman as genuine big-men, or Paul Reed as undersized 5s, but next years the one. I'll copy and paste the info about them in case you wanted to look.Ibou Dianko Badji
: 7'1", 230lbs with a 7'8" wingspan. I feel like he'll rise a lot though. Looks like a clone of Dikembe on film.Oscar Tshiebwe
: 6'9, 260lbs with a 7'4" wingspan. Amazing rebounder (over 9RPG in just over 20MPG as a freshman) and active on defence.Amar Sylla
: 6'9", 200lbs with a 7'2" wingspan. Really raw but has all the tools, seen lots of forwards in this mould over the last few years.Moussa Cisse
: 6'10", 215lbs with a 7'1.5" wingspan. Really coordinated athletic big, swats a lot of shots.
A lot depends on what happens with our pick from the Grizzlies
